The COVID-19 virus has left the world in a state of fear as the situation is already quite serious and controlling it and bringing it back to normal will be an uphill task, especially in countries like Italy, Spain, Iran, etc. Till the time this article was written, the number of the infected persons all over the world is more than 3,40,000 while the number of people who have lost their lives due to this disease has crossed the 14,000 mark.
As of now, India is at the stage 2 but if we enter the 3rd stage, it will be a nightmare for a country which has a population of around 1.3 billion and things may get worse than Italy. Many celebrities are using their popularity for spreading awareness about the disease and one of them is the former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag.
Viru recently took to the micro-blogging site Twitter and posted a photo of a truck’s backside on which it was written, “Keep Distance”.
The caption written by the explosive batsman was,
“Truck ka paalan kijiye.
Please follow this. #Covid_19”

At this moment, social distancing is the need of the hour as the disease is contagious in nature and it can spread if people come near to each other. The government and medical authorities have also asked people to stay at home, travel only if necessary and practice social distancing.
Earlier also, Virender Sehwag made a tweet for spreading awareness about social distancing which showed a girl doing “Corona Mukt Aasan” by not letting anyone sit near her using her flexibility. Here is the tweet:
